# How do you simplify (4s + st) /( 3s)?

Sep 7, 2016

$\frac{1}{3} \left(4 + t\right)$

#### Explanation:

We have: $\frac{4 s + s t}{3 s}$

First, let's factorise the numerator by taking $s$ in common:

$= \frac{s \left(4 + t\right)}{3 s}$

We can now cancel the $s$ terms:

$= \frac{4 + t}{3}$

$= \frac{4}{3} + \frac{1}{3} t$

$= \frac{1}{3} \left(4 + t\right)$
